We know how important having complete and up to date information is for our customers’ fundraising efforts. That’s why our research team splits their time between adding in new funding opportunities and ensuring that existing profiles and deadlines are up to date.
So far in 2012, they’ve verified and updated every deadline in our database and have added 148,000 grants to charities. These are gifts made in 2011, mostly by Canadian foundations but also some by charities. This represents over $8.4 billion given to Canadian charities last year. The 600,000+ grants in our database already allow us to offer our customers the most complete picture of foundation giving in Canada but we’ve got a lot more in the pipeline, so stay tuned!
